Here's a piece I wrote in which Carley lives and teams up with this guy, Avery. She wants to reconnect with the group, he wants to head to the mountains, and it follows their journey.
I wrote the very beginning but I left it alone in favor of some other projects. I have the story planned out but don't intend on finishing it. Still, I'd hate to see it be for not so I thought I'd share what I have.
EXT. LONG ROAD - NIGHT
A walker is shuffling towards a body (Carley) on the side of
